These last couple of weeks I haven’t been writing my blog that much, but there’s a very good reason for that. I’m preparing for these four final tests in my horticulture class, covering a plethora of information that I didn’t even know was going to be covered on the tests until recently. Just last week our teacher told us about a ton of information on a specific test that he never covered with us. He handed out a bunch of packets of information that we have to study, stressing me out to the max. Our teacher told us all that he wasn’t even going to order one of the four tests for fear that none of us would pass the test, making him look bad. Needless to say, I’m extremely frustrated and concerned right now. These tests are very important to me right now, I want to pass them all, I need to pass them all, to show myself and my family and even possible future employers just how hard I worked in prison to prepare for a successful future upon my release from prison. I continue to work out every morning, running on the track and strength training, but I’ve had to cut it back to about 1-2 hours a day in order to focus more of my time and energy on these horticulture tests. I’ve even had to put my guitar practice on the backburner because I’ve also been trying to finish a soap carving of Bart Simpson for my son, Taylor’s tenth birthday, which is on June 1st. Sure, I maybe stressed out, but I’m making it all work for myself. Much of the same things I’ll be facing in society, unable to run away from my problems anymore. This is just another one of many lessons that God has placed in my life, to further strengthen and prepare me for my future outside of these prison walls.
